Happy Monday Friends,
In light of my 2018 resolution to not complain, I am going to make an effort not to complain in this blog post. That is, in spite of the fact that I have a bone to pick with all of my friends and followers. For those of my blog followers that don’t know, I have an Executive Facebook page where I talk about fabric, my companies, the history of our business, the industry, the sewing machine giveaway, charity, my personal life, whatever is on my mind and so much more. If we aren’t already friends there, please take a minute to be my friend….pretty please. Doesn’t that sound so cute? I feel like Mr. Rogers, “Will you be my neighbor?”
There was one executive Facebook post in particular that I want to bring to your attention from December 15 which I have attached below:
When I posted that comment, I had 661 likes. Today, I stand at around 1050 followers and it looks like I have hit the ceiling. I think the people at Facebook are doing a Jedi mind trick on me because that number hasn’t moved in weeks, but who is looking?
Anyway, here is the complaining/non-complaining: It was sad that we couldn’t get to 1250 likes and go upwards from 62 machines given away before the year ended. I mean, it’s not like I was asking people to give me money or take an hour out of their busy day to help push my agenda. All that I am asking is that you take a minute to share my page and get all your quilty/fabric friends on board. Please have them “like” and share so that everyone could hear what I have to say and what I am trying to do to help revitalize our great quilting industry back to where it once was. Is that so hard? Is that so wrong of me? If you ask me, I think it is a very admirable cause and I need to know that you are with me.
What I really want is more people to hear about the sewing revolution and to spread the free sewing machine giveaway to the farthest corners of the US. I can’t do it without you. The plan for me is to continue to give away free sewing machines to those suffering through tragedy or hardship for an indefinite period of time i.e. I have no plan to stop as of right now.
So here’s THE PLAN for this to be mutually beneficial: Share my page with 5 people that you know who are in to quilting. Share it with your guild. Share it with your sewing circle. Just focus on the people that you know would care to hear about my mission and my hopes for a strong future in the quilting industry.
I have at least 50 sewing machines in house to giveaway this year and I am NOT afraid to do lots more. Let’s call a spade a spade, I gave away 62 in about 4 months, so imagine what I could do in a year. Please believe in me that when I say “lots”, I mean lots. Don’t test me! But, I need more likes and shares and I need more legitimate requests from people that need a sewing machine to help them through their struggles. The requests have slowed down dramatically of late and that is why I need your help to continue to spread the word and share the love that I have for our great industry as well as those who are down on their luck. Give me a hand please. We got this!
Thank you in advance!
Yours Truly Scott
